Finally repierced my nipples after having to remove them for a medical procedure in the beginning of September. Initially got them pierced in February and was absolutely loving having them.
I had been thinking about getting them redone since having to take them out but decided to let them heal prior to repiercing. I also started a new job a week after having to remove them so decided to get settled into my new job before taking the plunge to repierce. Well Saturday was the day.
While holidaying in New Zealand, I had my nipples pierced on 14 November, 2013. Below is my account:
Today I had my nipples pierced by Scott Jania at Ninjaflower in Wellington: ninjaflower.co.nz.
As my partner and I have been repeat customers before, we were warmly welcomed and had a decent chat with Esther, Scott, and Ruben. Scott showed me around their new studio, which is considerably larger than their old premises.
It has been almost 11 months since I got my vertical nipple pierced.
I was a 24 year old male who always had a "thing" for piercings but never took the plunge to actually get one and, fearing the judgment of others, I kept waiting for something meaningful to get.
Suddenly, and sadly, the "something meaningful" came in the form of breast cancer: one of my relatives got that diagnosis and a biopsy and two surgeries later she was left with a scar on her chest and a bigger emotional scar in her brain.
I started thinking of a way to show my support and, after some months, the idea of a nippl
I'm a 25 year old male, who decided a few months back I wanted a nipple piercing to go along with a tattoo I'm planning for later this year.
I have a high pain tolerance, but it's been 9 years since the last time I've intentionally subjected myself to it (I got my last tattoo at 16, haven't done anything since.)
I got a bug up my ass one day and decided to do it soon so it'd be healed by the time I was ready for my next tattoo. I started reading up on it, and decided Friday night that I would get it done the next morning. That morning, I watched videos of it being done.
So, I am a straight male who was considering this for a while throughout my early twenties.
I got it done a little while ago at 24yo after at least 2 years of hesitation; and much desiring it. Finally got the courage to get it done after a piercer talking to a piercer who finally said, 'it's just a piercing, take it out if you don't like it' and figuring out it could be covered up reasonably well with undergarments, sweaters.
After talking with a piercer about size, etc. I sorta said I'd come back the next day as I was busy.
Well after wanting them pierced for what seemed like forever I finally met a piercer I trusted! Now i was told that i have tiny nipples but was assured that they could be done! I was slightly nervous at seeing the needle for the first time but was looking forward to the finished result! I had my left pierced first and the right about three weeks after! I didn't feel the left nipple piercing at all my right nipple was more painful but nothing that I couldn't handle. It's been 6 weeks now since the first one and I am so glad I got them done
Nipple Piercing Experience: 1/25/13
I have always found nipple piercings slightly daring, dangerous and adventurous. My interests in them have been around for a while, but I never got that push to just do it. One of my friend talked about the “F*** It” mentality and to just do it because you want to. One day, just sitting in a coffee shop reading, I couldn’t stop thinking about getting my nipples pierced, the shop was just within walking distance. After sitting in the coffee shop, just thinking, I decided it was something to really consider. Have I wanted them? Yes.
Had my nipples pierced about five years ago. They had been so small at the time I didn't even think they could be pierced, but my piercer assured me they could be. They were a pretty small gauge, fourteen I think but they healed well and I liked them as well as the sensitivity, as before having them pierced it was pretty much non-existent.
After about a year, and no doubt because of not enough tissue to support it the left one began to migrate. Not wanting this to happen I ended up taking them both out.
When I was in college I decided, on a whim, to get my right nipple pierced. Unfortunately, it was done, little to my knowledge at the time, poorly--it was too low, too small of a ring was used, and it never properly healed. After a year I took it out, but I always wanted to get it redone with a matching left one.
Fast forward 6 years and a whole lot more measured thinking! After months of contemplating & research I decided to do it all over again. I asked a coworker who I knew had a few piercings. I work in a professional office, so discretion is a bit of a requirement.
I'd been thinking about getting my nipple re pierced for a little while. The previous one got ripped out accidently whilst sleeping !! Anyway today I decided "Why not, today is as good as anyother so lets go for it". I went to my local tattoo and piercing studio (Under Your Skin, in Pontefract West Yorkshire) and spoke to my good freinds Dean and Jane. Their new studio is immaculate and after a little chat I was laid on the piercing bench being asked if I was sure I wanted this done. Well I couldn't back down now so told Jane to "Go for it" and held my breath.
